Before the Lunar New Year, we clean our flats and sweep out all the bad luck. Afterwards, we put decorations on the walls to bring us luck and good health. Then we go to the flower market and buy lots of flowers for our home. We also help our parents prepare food for the holiday. At midnight on New Year's Eve, some people light firecrackers to welcome the new year. On New Year's Day, everyone says "Kung Hei Fat Choy" to each other, and our parents give us money in small packets. We visit our family and friends, and some people also watch the New Year Parade. The best thing about the next day is the firework display in Victoria Harbour. It is amazing! At night, the buildings are covered in lights and the fireworks light up the sky. This is my favourite part of the holiday. The Lunar New Year is a great time to visit Hong Kong. There are lots of things to see and do.
